The ABC Safety Academy is designed to help attendees understand the importance of leadership commitment, cultural transformation and the safety management processes in achieving a world class safety culture. The Safety Academy is different from any other safety training you’ve experienced; it goes beyond the “technical” side of safety and explores the emotional and behavioral components that take safety from one of many priorities to the core value upon which all decisions are based. This in-depth exploration of what it takes to transform your safety culture and mindset will be led by industry leaders and will establish the trajectory for your organization towards world-class safety performance.
